One of my favourite memories of our trip to California was seeing California Sea Otter

We were fortunate to see one in Monterrey harbour as it made its way amongst the boats swimming their characteristic backstroke.

Now there is the chance to watch Sea Otters live thanks to a 24 hour camera feed from Elkhorn Slough in California which has one of the highest populations of these wonderful mammels
